Nicholas Cleobury celebrates Mid Wales Opera’s 25th anniversary with a successful production of Handel’s operatic gem Acis and Galatea in collaboration with the RWCMD and featuring members of Rachel Podger’s Brecon Baroque. Conducting “a show that cannot fail to delight”, Cleobury has been receiving critical acclaim from the national press:
“Nicholas Cleobury’s deft direction”
Richard Morrison, The Times****
“Cleobury’s handling of his forces, small chorus and student chorus in the wings, ensured that Handel’s score was subtly realised.”
Rian Evans, The Guardian****
“Nicholas Cleobury conducts crisply and with energy. [...] Cleobury is a very fine conductor”
“Cleobury’s handling of the score had sensitivity”
